BULLET-TIMING DVD ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE WEEK

'The Animatrix'

On June 3, Warner is releasing a DVD of nine Matrix-centric anime shorts -- including ''The Final Flight of the Osiris,'' a prelude to ''The Matrix Reloaded'' -- conceived by the Wachowski brothers and crafted by some of Japan's finest animators. Four of them will premiere on the Web, but the others are just for DVD fans to whoa over.
